Paper Abstract

In this paper, we propose an all optical OTDM demultiplexer basing on a novel Mach-Zehnder interferometer. The principle for demultiplexing is similar to the normal SOAs based MZI demultiplexer. Differing from the normal one, we creatively utilize a combination of fiber and space structure which is made by using thin membrane plating technology in GRIN lens, instead of the fused tapered fiber couplers of the general form. It has advantages of polarization insensitivity, broadband, high temperature stability. Utilizing this novel structure, 10Gbit/s tributary signal demultiplexed from 40Gbit/s signal is successfully demonstrated.
